insurance plans pay under part d of medicare for prescription drugs. they are taking advantage of their purchasing power. and we're relying on private insurers committee are' competition in part d of medicare, it isn't as effective as the v.a. which does take advantage of its market power. let me just talk for a moment on a private insurance. we rely on private insurance here. it's for-profit insurance. i think it leads to much higher health care costs. private insurers, obviously by definition, they have to make a profit. in addition to that they engage in marketing, they also engage in what we call medical understood writing, they have to hire a lot of actuaries to make sure that they're not taking on people who are too expensive. these are all very costly things. so that raises the price of private insurance. in addition, as i said, they don't have as much bargaining power so they also can't keep their prices low by taking advantage of the consolidated power that i'm talking about. so you might ask, why do we allow private insurance to have quasi-monopoly and the answer is t

the medicare advantage. we did nursing home standards and passed the law 25 years ago and have never had a hearing on that. long-term care insurance, are consumers protected? june 16th, termination of individual health insurance policies. if you are buying an individual family policy eiffel application, right? we had two hearings on this. when you fill up the insurance policy, most companies have about 1400 different codes. you go to the local drugstore in the fill up the prescription. if you trigger a code that will review your policy because with that code triggered might be very expensive medical treatment might be facing in the future and therefore they will jump you -- dump you. for instance, one family as they were filling out the form the told him to put out he was 180 pounds but he was really 250 pounds. they dumped him and said he lied on his application. when it terminated from your health insurance policy, who do you appeal to? the company that just the end user you do not have a repeal rights. -- the company that just dumped you so you don't have repeal rights. they're all ki
about the condition of social security and of medicare, both teetering the tremendous federal deficit that seems to be getting bigger and bigger and wondering, how in the world we are going to pay for this. >> you raise an extremely important point. a bit of history, and then my sense of what is next. at the beginning of 2009, it was theç general judgmentç of çeconomists, conservatives, moderates, liberals, economists all across the political spectrum that there was a real prospect our country could have had aç depressionú prospect of deflation. it said there wasç an argument then for stimulusç legislation. you can debate whether it should have included this or that or something else, but there was a consensus that some stimulus was needed. çnow, certainly, many months later, we wake up and our government owns a car companyt( an insurance company, an investment house, and people are çsaying, excuse me? what is next? çgivenç all of these deficits? and i do believe that it isççe for the government to put in place something of an exit strategy soç that, in some
social security and medicare and medicaid, probably the two main things basically bleeding us dry. but basically it is suicide to talk about those two. so we are going to have to go with, i guess, the spending cuts that he suggested. that is basically all i have to say. host: little rock, arkansas. paul on the republican line. caller: the morning, greta. i would like the president to talk about jobs and the economy. and during the campaign he promised to save millions of jobs. also promised to create millions of dollars. since he has been president he has created a huge deficit, sent $100 million to haiti, and there are many people right here in america who are unemployed, people who need jobs, and i feel that he should concentrate on taking care of the american people first. host: that is the headline in "the wall street journal" and "the new york times." it says -- host: new york city, luis, independent line. the trustee secretary will be testifying about what he knew about aig and that will be at 10:00 a.m. eastern time live on c-span3. also testifying as former treasury secret

to more commons. for example, with the healthcare, it is medicare and medicaid going bankrupt. if you brought in as the private insurers are able to jury began bring in healthy individuals to medicare -- are able to bring in and cherry pick healthy individuals -- perhaps a sliding scale -- it could bring healthy individuals paying full premiums into medicare to balance out the expenses we have now to pay for 65 and over. as you get older more medical bills. i would be interested to see c- span have some accountant or actuarial come in to run the numbers that exist for the private health insurers and have them make their profits. how to make medicare at a fee. host: banks, we will go at this point because we will have an hour-long later on health care. today concerning the senate, your view, the independent line from anderson, indiana. caller: it is truly disgusting after the display of the health care fiasco you have seen. the conservative an element is tearing up the fabric of democracy. after watching the sonia sotomayor confirmation hearings you have a 99 white guys who question pe

in the medicare prescription drug plan. that's the deal. that's not anywhere written. that's not going to get done until after the health care bill plan passes. >>reporter: well thank you senator. >> my pleasure. >>reporter: california governor schwarzenegger just turned into a terminator in a stunning reversal. governor schwarzenegger just came out against the democrat plan for health care reform. our own griff is in california. griff griff, he was for the plan health care reform plan. now the governor is against it. what happened? >> that's right, greta. the governor was president obama's biggest if not only republican national supporter but we are here at the capitol in sacramento where earlier today the governor slammed the health care legislation. take a look at what he said. >> now congress is about to pile billions more on the california with new health care bill. as you know i enthusiastically supported health care reform it is not reform to push more cost on the state that already struggling while other states are getting sweet heart deals. health care reform started as noble
. it will cost us more? >> the center for medicare services says it will cost .6%, almost 1% more. so democrats are saying, hey, this is pretty good. only 1% increase. we're having tremendous increases every year. although this past year we had the lowest increase in a long time. a little over 4% based on the recession. however, that's not the real story. the real story in that report also says that doctors and hospitals will find it unprofitable, perhaps, to take medicare and may, in fact, move away from accepting medicare patients. >> that's the real take away in that report. >> then if -- if the pool of doctors who take medicare patients shrinks, does that lead to what some have referred to as rationing simply because there will be fewer to pick from? >> absolutely. in an alcoholic since, rationing and leads to increased prices for health consumers based on demand, and what it's going to lead to is we have now medicare increases of about 8% a year historically. the government is saying with this plan, we're going to cut medicare a half trillion dollars. can that really be done based upon the
programs like social security and medicare represent socialism and should have never been created in the first place? gosh, democrats, this is a scary question. another trap. you know what? it's only scary if you don't know who you are or what you believe in. i'm an american. i read. i believe in the constitution. and, of course, social security and medicare represent socialism. and should have never been created. since f.d.r. and his progressive buddies started social security, not our founding fathers, that should be fairly obvious to people. speaking by the way of f.d.r.'s progressive buddies, do you know who created social security? it was a guy named harry hopkins. the closest advisor to f.d.r. he was also accused of being a spy. he had a relationship with sta stalin and was one of the few people who could talk to stalin and get him to accomplish foreign policy. just remember, hopkins, same guy, created social security. so, let me tell you about social security. another recipient named ida may fuller. she was the first person to receive a monthly benefit. she worked for three
has a sweetheart deal to let people out of medicare advantage. he has a deal for a number of counties in florida. 13 different democrat senators have said, we want something special for us. harry reid said if you didn't get something special for you, you are not doing a good job. >> greta: did any republican senator get any special care in this health care bill? >> not that i saw. i think the bill is terrible and i think the republicans uniformly saw that, it raises taxes, cuts medicare and it is going to cause families in america to have their premiums go up and even the medicare people say that >> greta: do you believe that senator ben nelson we he accepted his 300 million, do you believe he was thinking that every state should and would get that? >> no, not at all. >> greta: what is that? >> winston churchill would have called it a term logical inexactitude. he to come up with something that's the best he could come up with. he said on the principle of where he stood on federal funding and abortion. then he gives into language not the language that people who feel that way wanted.

, strengthen medicare for seniors and stop insurance company abuses, let me know. let me know. let me know. i'm eager to see it. here's what i ask congress, though. don't walk away from reform. not now. not when we are so close. let us find a way to come together and finish the job for the american people. let's get it done. let's get it done. now, even as health care reform would reduce our deficit, it's not enough to dig us out of a massive fiscal hole in which we find ourselves. it's a challenge that makes all others that much harder to solve, and one that's been subject to a lot of political posturing. so let me start the discussion of government spending by setting the record straight. at the beginning of the last decade, the year 2000, america had a budget surplus of over $200 billion. by the time i took office, we had a one-year deficit of over $1 trillion and projected deficits of $8 trillion over the next decade. most of this was the result of not paying for two wars, two tax cuts, and an expensive prescription drug program. on top of that, the effects of the recession put a $3 trill
reform as a way to trim medicare spending to fund coverage expansion a lot of these voters were very suspicious of this. you see them getting mobilized in a way that's very unpredictable at the time. i think this was the political mistake. rather than looking to conservative policy elites in the capital, barack obama should have looked to who were those older white republican voters who didn't necessarily love bush, who were willing to give him a chance but who had a very different set of concerns from again those inside the belt way policy wons. i think not getting that visceral sense of concern that particularly a lot of older voters who didn't vote for him in the 2008 election or who stayed home, et cetera that was a big mistake he's still paying for and has exacted some costs in the form of those from the left being disillusioned as well as those on the right. it's a much more confusing landscape. >> i think there's a lot to that. i also think that something that the president said in his inaugural address that hasn't been widely quoted but i thought was extraordinarily shrewd, h
along the party line on cap and trade and obama care and higher taxes and cutting medicare. they are going to say no to does things. i think when the politicking time comes they are going to say i don't think i want to invite barack obama to come into my district, he does not make things happen. >> sean: amazing turn around one year ago think of where we were in the country. there's been talk about how this impacts health care. nancy pelosi said earlier today that health care will go for. other congressmen says it does not. then there's talk about she nan agains that they won't seat brown right away if he has the victory tonight if they play any shenanigans what does that do to the mood of the electorate, which is clearly pretty angry and pretty anti-the democrats' agenda? >> i would be surprised, the democrats have been talking what they would do if scott brown became elected how they would get their health care through despite the will of the people. if they play the kind of she nan -- shenanigans you described it will show the arrogance which has lead to brown's victory

-span. finally, i believe the way out of this health-care mess is to open up medicare, certainly to page 55, and allow the medicare to cherry pick help the citizens such as myself. i pay $7,000 out of pocket every year. i've only used $700 in health insurance. there would be left over profit that could go to medicare. the must be millions who would not use their health care if medicare would open. we don't have to be in the shark tank with private insurers who would deny claims. host: and then they'll, virginia. on the democrats' line. caller: good morning. i think this is pathetic that c- span is sending letters out. i did not ever remember when c- span ever sent a letter during the bush administration. obama said that, yes. he said from the white house. i remember john mccain, both parties, and all -- every other health institution was there to discuss what was going on. if you see the level of people calling, the intellectualism has drastically dropped. the guests invited over at c- span and his supporters and the people who comment always spew their venomous about partisan shship which
lieberman and senator nelson. the other thing is to start over again and add medicare, add 55-year-olds up to medicare, which is what the senate was thinking about doing in the first place. there's a big advantage if you do that. you don't get universal insurance and insurance reform, but the senate bill has very little reform in it anyway. you get per insured rate away who can't get it because they're over 55. i think that kind of approach is the kind of approach i would use. get it done, have it easy to understand. the expansion of medicare is easy to understand. we can run it through reconciliation pretty quickly. you don't have a choice. if you're going to get anything done in the senate from this point on, it's going to be through reconciliation. >> governor dean, thank you very much. we have to take a quick break right now, and we'll be checking in with scott brown's headquarters. hevy tahoe, south on i-75, near exit 5. we're on it. onstar, we may have that tahoe. ok, i'll flash the lights. we got it. it's in the clear. i'm sending a signal to cut the power. we got him. mr. ross, the
